Maternity Styles for Plus Size Moms

“It’s not about what size you wear, it’s about how you wear your size.”


“It’s not about what size you wear, it’s about how you wear your size.”

Ask any woman what her biggest challenge is when buying clothes.

Size! Size! Size! (written in XXL fonts 🛍️😟)

But there’s no need to sacrifice your own personal style just because you are full figured as well as pregnant.

Here are 5 Commandments to keep in mind while designing your maternity wardrobe:

  • Don't buy “Large”, buy “Maternity”

Your dress shouldn’t look like one you borrowed from a giant. Larger sizes make your dress droop at the shoulders and your hemlines end up sweeping the floor. On an average, during pregnancy your waist size will go up by 9 - 15 inches but it won’t change your other proportions in the same ratio.

So you should look for maternity clothes that Accommodate & Accentuate your body the right way.

  • Go with the Flow

Cotton, Lycra, Organza and Knit fabrics stretch and will keep you comfortable both when you go out for work or errands or want to hang out at home in something stylish. They will skim your body and nip in at all the right places.

Be sure to get soft and flowing materials that drape more smoothly and feel better than bulky, tight knit ones.

  • Show the Magic

You can draw attention to your face, neck and shoulders by wearing V-neck tops. Gathers, drawstrings and ruching in strategic locations will add a beautiful profile to your outfits and give you an overall balanced silhouette.

The length of your hemlines is also a great way to enhance your entire look. Uneven lengths at ankle or knee level create an interesting asymmetry which flaunts your bump.

  • Razzle & Dazzle

Just because you are growing big, it doesn’t mean that you can’t bring out the colours and prints. Keep your print sizes moderate and make sure to add a dash of colour to really spruce up your outfit.

5) Layer it Up

Wearing a loose flowing jacket on a fitting top or dress adds a new dimension to your overall look. You can also go for vests, coats, blazers, kimonos, ponchos or capes. Make sure that the color is complementary to your top.
